Zuzemberk is a small town in Suha Krajina in Slovenia. It is the centre of Suha Krajina. Since the year 1998 is the centre of the independent community. It lies in the terrace above the river Krka. Zuzemberk was in the sources first mentioned in the year 1246 and like the square in the year 1399. In the town is the school since the year 1828. The greatest building in the city is Zuzemberk Castle, which is in the renovation at the moment. In the summer time in the castle are cultural and touristical entertainments and concerts. First was the castle mentioned in the year 1295. In the 16th century was strengthened to the fortress, which had seven defensive towers. The emperor Ferdinand sold it to the Auersperg family in the year 1538 and they had it in the property till the end of the Second World War.
